, with the sort of patchwork vision of how this could work? because in new york, in august, there was a shooting outside the empire state building, and highly trained new york city police officers ended up wounding nine bystanders. doesn't that create also a dangerous precedent that's worth some concern and caution? >> no. because here's -- what's the alternative? 20 students massacred, six administrators, teachers? this is going to happen again and again and some people out there are trying to be thoughtful and say, well, let's restrict gun ownership or possession or the size and capacity of magazines, thinking somehow that this will improve school safety. it will not. and so, i'm trying to be realistic, is how can we do it, when you refer to new york city. some of the key elements in safety, in law enforcement officers are trained in this, and should be far more disciplined. and not to criticize these new york officers, but you always watch your backstop, in anyone this your environment, before you fire at anybody. and so, every police officer, just because we wear a badge, we're not superhero

"off the fiscal cliff, this fall is really going to hurt." that's what they said. >>> up next, it used to be a favorite republican pastime, going after hillary clinton. it hasn't happened for a while, of course, but what if she does run for president? how could they resist doing it again? you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. check out my new treadmill app. pretty sweet, huh? cute. but don't you have any apps on your phone that can make your life easier? who do you think i am, quicken loans? at quicken loans, we'll provide you with myql mobile. this amazingly useful app allows you to take pictures of your mortgage documents using an iphone or android smart phone... so you can easily send them to us. one more way quicken loans is engineered to amaze. ooh, la-la! >>> i'm craig melvin. we have some breaking news at this hour. nbc news laz learned president obama will host a meeting tomorrow afternoon with congressional leadership from both sides of the aisle. house this re
% of the people and say to the president that's it, no more, come back on the debt ceiling. the "new york times" wrote about that as a fallback position. could you support that? >> well, first of all, i don't want to feed into the doomsday stuff. i'm confident there are enough people, the majority of people in the town that understand what we are playing with here, playing chicken with is the most important country in the world, and, you know, with are on the verge of doing significant, and, perhaps, lasting damage to the enormous and extraordinary country we inherited. nobody wants that to be a part of the public service legacy. that being said, before we talk about fiscal cliffs, remember, we are here because of the last fiscal cliff. since we had another fiscal cliff type scenario with the debt limit that credited the scenario that led to this, and this idea i voted against that, put bad things to happen at one time because that will force washington to do something. well, surprise, it didn't work. here we are, again, facing this. we have two issues to face. number one is in the immediate te
, for the markets? i mean, we would never see the new york stock exchange and the i.c.e. wouldn't get together. we couldn't get that fine from ubs. >> how about the big options to live for? >> there may be some stuff. this may be the christmas week to be here. >> it may end up back here at some point. >> you really think so? >> we made it -- >> but i'm not sure. >> we mentioned where the fiscal cliff was only slightly below the end of the world in terms of seriousness, haven't we? and now that we've made it past that, we're going to focus. and then you have the debt ceiling. >> that would be funny. >> this whole thing gets pushed up to the debt ceiling. >> john can talk about this incredible ground swell in the country for everything that the president wanted, even though we know what this coalition was sort of cobbled together. and we know there was a great campaign that he ran. >> i know. but the way we set these things up is you have to have a referendum on these things. >> but you need both houses. that's a law. and these guys are willing. they'll fall on the floor. >> i don't know that anybod
organization whether "the new york times" and say wait a minute, this is so freaking far out. this kind of claim goes back to at least joan mccarthy. but at least the specificity of it. and that somehow -- some people believe there are 81 communists in the democratic party. some don't agree. let's hear for the pros and the cons here. >> one of my favorites was when rick santorum insisted that president kennedy's religious speech in houston put religion out of the public sphere and made him want to throw up. not one reporter who reported that remark went to google -- and i did -- looked at that speech and said as a matter of fact he talks about the role of religion. he talks about the priests in his life. so it's sort of like you're just -- i understand that on deadline it could be difficult, but you're just allowed to spew this stuff and people don't even sometimes use the basic tools of journalism to say really? is that what president kennedy said? >> the best line in that speech which may be kennedy's best speech was the interest here is not what church i go to, it's what america i be
tracks? more on that. >> and hear what this small business owner in new york city, where we are right now, thinks about the cliff crisis. >> i'm annoyed. i'm annoyed with the fiscal cliff. we're looking at not knowing what's going to happen. we fall off this cliff, an everyone gets affected. there's no trickle-down effect. it's more like a slush. we'll lose income. the question is how much income are we going to lose? if we fall off the cliff, the fear is that we fall off the cliff, not slowly glide down the cliffch the government at this point needs to understand that we should be able to trust you to do the right thing, put politics aside and think about us, the people that's why we have government. fix it.

. -- pennsylvania, new york. there are federal dollars that pay for maintaining those highways. you can't have a million people pay for all those highways because it connects the entire country. you have forest service, 30% of the land is owned by the federal government. so there's a lot of federal dollars that come to montana. that's part of the system. >> what would be the economic impact, going back to what the farmer was telling us about the situation, if estate taxes go up 55%. we're going to see farmers cutting back on the size of their farms, some may even go out of business. what's the economic impact and how can you mitigate that, governor? >> the difficulty here is over the long-term. naturally, sometime during january if we go over the cliff which is more of a hill, these congressmen will come to their senses. they've gone completely crazy and apparently if you vote for something on december tlonl, then it's okay with grover nor quist and if it's after december 31st, it's something else. look, a pledge is one thing, but look right now we've been spending money on a credit card natio
for "the new york times" and "the huffington post." it depends on the small business. it's funny when people say all small businesses will be affected if the fiscal cliff does hit, but don't forget, there's over 20 million small businesses in this country and it depends what business you're in, where you're located and what business you're in and where your customers are and there are factors when you start to generalize. >> we hear it mostly on the taxation side. if you raise taxes on people who make more than $250,000 don't forget a lot of small businesses file as individuals and make more than $250,000. >> it's absolutely true. i mean, but most small businesses, particularly my readers and the clients that i have, they're bracing for that. it seems an ineshvitablility th there will be increases in capital gains and interest rates and estate taxes next year and that all seems to be on the board. >> health care will get more expensive if they provide it. >> michelle, remember, it's not going cripple many small businesses. it's a deterrent from them investing and it's a deterrent from
